Why I Blog

I was inspired by one of my new dear friends, Heather from Hopeless Notebook to answer a few questions about why I blog. Even though I'm still fairly new to the blogging world, it'd be really cool to post about it now, and then post it again in a few years or so and see how much my answers have changed.

1. I blog because...it allows me to express myself. I have always loved writing. The fact that you can get all of your emotions out on a piece of paper without having to utter a single word is incredible to me. I find that writing and blogging provides me with an outlet for the thoughts in my head.

2. 1 thing I love seeing on other blogs is...a variety of content. Pictures, tutorials, crafts, reviews, and an insight to the blogger's personal life are all elements of a great blog in my opinion.

3. Something I love about blogging...is that you get to connect with other people! Comments, followers, emails, I LOVE them all! I love having people comment on my posts, whether it is positive or negative, I learn from and reply to them all.

4. A favorite post of mine...is my Weird Fact Wednesday post. Though I don't really have an extensive list of posts to pull from, I like that post because it gives people an insight to who I am and allows readers to get to know me on a more personal level.

5. Something my real friends know about me that I've never mentioned on my blog before...is that I'm a huge drama queen! I can't help it, I just am. I was spoiled by my grandparents since I was little so I'm just used to getting what I want. I have extravagant tastes, I like to be the center of attention, and I can be a major bitch if I need to be (and I'll use vulgar language if my buttons are pushed too far).

6. My new favorite blogs to read are...well I have a lot of favorites, but the ones I blog stalk constantly are: Hopeless Notebook, Goodbye Yellowbrick Road, and Life in the Boys' Locker Room.

7. Some things I tend to avoid doing on my blog are...pretending to be someone I'm not. I think that some people use blogging as a way to be someone they want to be instead of showing the world who they really are. I try to stay true to myself (yeah, I know it sounds hippie) and post about things that I like and that are important to me. I'm not a crafting genius, I'm not a perfect parent, and my wardrobe isn't up-to-date with the latest fashions. But in a world full of "reality" tv, shows, and celebrities, it is refreshing to find REAL bloggers, no quotation marks necessary.


Please follow along and post why YOU blog!
